BACKGROUND: There was a dramatic increase in the volume of manuscripts submitted to The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (JBJS) between 2009 and 2012. This resulted in increased journal administrative costs. To offset this financial burden, in May 2013, JBJS started charging authors an administrative processing fee at the time of submission. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of the administrative fee on the volume and characteristics of manuscripts submitted to JBJS. METHODS: Our analysis included 866 manuscripts submitted to JBJS between November 2012 and November 2013...

BACKGROUND: HGS is a severe deformity most commonly affecting L5-S1 vertebral segment. Treatment available for HGS includes a range of different surgical options: full or partial reduction of translation and/or abnormal alignment and in situ fusion with or without decompression. Various instrumented or non-instrumented constructs are available, and surgical approach varies from anterior/posterior to combined depending on surgeon preference and experience. The aim of this systematic review was to review the literature on lumbosacral high-grade spondylolisthesis (HGS), identify patients at risk for progression to higher-grade slip and evaluate various surgical strategies to report on complications and radiographic and clinical outcomes...

BACKGROUND: The number of systematic reviews published in the orthopaedic literature has increased, and these reviews can help guide clinical decision making. However, the quality of these reviews can affect the reader's ability to use the data to arrive at accurate conclusions and make clinical decisions. PURPOSE: To evaluate the methodological and reporting quality of systematic reviews and meta-analyses in the sports medicine literature to determine whether such reviews should be used to guide treatment decisions...

BACKGROUND: Periodic review of the published research in pediatric orthopaedics is helpful to evaluate the state of scientific methodology. The purpose of this paper was to review the levels of evidence (LOE) and types of evidence (TOE) published in the Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics (JPO) from 2009 to 2013 and to compare the percentage of articles with each LOE to pediatric orthopaedic articles published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery-American Volume (JBJS) during the same time...

INTRODUCTION: The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS-Am) began publishing the level of evidence (LOE) for manuscripts in 2003. From 1975 to 2005 JBJS-Am saw a trend towards higher leveled studies. We aimed to demonstrate trends in the country of origin of manuscripts published in JBJS-Am, and hypothesized that not only were more publications coming from groups outside of North America, but that the studies originating within North America were of higher LOE. METHODS: All articles published in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (American) in 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2010 were independently evaluated by two reviewers and graded based on country, LOE (using the JBJS-Am LOE guidelines), and study type...

One of the goals of the annual American Orthopaedic Association (AOA) meeting is to address controversy, both in leadership and clinical practice. A panel of experts in their respective fields presented the background and literature behind three "myths" in orthopaedic management and made conclusions as to their validity. First, Dr. Kocher took on the myth of prophylactic pinning on the contralateral "normal" side for a patient with a slipped capital femoral epiphysis. Second, Dr. Probe evaluated the myth that all intertrochanteric fractures are best treated with intramedullary devices...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common cause of physical disability in childhood in developed countries and encompasses a wide range of clinical phenotypes. Classification of CP according to movement disorder or topographical distribution is widely used. However, these classifications are not reliable nor do they accurately predict musculoskeletal pathology. More recently, the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) has been introduced and its validity, reliability, and clinical utility have been confirmed...

BACKGROUND: Each Orthopaedic In-Training Examination (OITE) question references one or more journal articles or textbook sections as the evidence-based origin of its "preferred response." Previous studies identified the number of references to the top sources but not the number of questions covered by these top sources. The current study analyzes the question yield, time lag from publication, and sequential benefit-in terms of OITE questions covered-of the most referenced sources in order to provide residents and educators strategies for developing an efficient reading program...

BACKGROUND: Authorship is the currency of the academic orthopaedic surgeon. There has been an unprecedented increase in the number of authors per publication in many biomedical fields. Possible reasons for this trend include increased complexity of research, "undeserved" authorship, and the "pressure to publish." We explored the change in authorship in two leading orthopaedic journals over a period of sixty years. METHODS: We examined all original research articles and case reports published in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (American and British Volumes) (JBJS-A and JBJS-B) in ten-year intervals from 1949 to 2009...
